So here’s what happened:
All videos from Dhinchak Pooja’s YouTube account has been deleted. Yes. ALL OF THEM.
There’s a part of me that’s happy (and crying tears of joy) while a part that’s sad too (because I will never be able to prove to my future kids that there once lived a legend named Dhinchak Pooja).

It still shows 12 videos and 178,996 subscribers.
But if you click on her profile, you’ll realize that none of her videos are online anymore. They have all been taken down.

The story is still evolving.
We shall keep you updated. Till then, dilon ka shooter…aah..aa…
